I finally have enough money to start modding my and I want to do it right so I'm coming to the experts. There are a few things that I know I want to do, but I need advice that will effect future mods. I know I want to get the Veilside EC-I kit, but first I want to get some rims. Should I go with 17" or 18" and what size tires? Also I am interested in lowering the car, but not too much. I live around a lot of speed bumps so what are some good springs and how low is too low for speedbumps? Finally if I plan on having a paint job that is either primarily white or a light blue what is a good color for the rims? I appreciate any and all info.
are you the girl that we met at northridge meet?
well anyways, it all depends on how you want it.
if you want to go with show, get 18's with 225/40/18 tires, but it will cost you more for the tires. With 18's you can go with TRD
springs or eibach, they are perfect for 18's and 18's will have little bit bumpier ride
if you want to go show/go, go with 17's, its more durable and tires are cheaper than 18's and you can lower it how much as you want, such as hotchkis, tein, eibach and etc.
But if you are going with Veilside kit, i would go with 18's since the veilside kits drops your car pretty low.
And 18's with 1' drop will be perfect, ask Marco from Pacific forum, he has veilside kit with 18's
If you are going with white, get white rims, they look very clean with white car. if you are going with blue, get black
hope this answers your question
